I’ve been with my husband 18 years, married 7 1/2. We have our daughter, and are surrounded by so much family that love and support us!
Can I say, I love that man. He was my best friend in high school (and remains my best friend), he was the last man I thought I would marry. Yet, here we are, with many bumps and curves, we’ve made it through it all! He knows me like no other. He is protective and caring. My husband has supported all my endeavors, my schooling, my adventures. I can say he loves all the parts of me, even the crazy.
Okay, I know I’ve gotten mushy on you, but Valentines Day was our very first date, making it a special date. We are often asked what are you all doing, and when we say nothing; people are shocked. This year, I got a drill and I got him some natural soaps, canldles and cake pop (I ordered him a planner and Joker action figure, but they didn’t arrive yet…shhhhh don’t tell him). We went out and had a drink and came home where he watched the all star game, and I made jewelry. The rest of the night was just being with each other, and Chewie (our fur baby).
You see, we don’t need one day to remind us of the love we have. We do it most days. We buy each other little gifts, leave little notes, or send loving text. Hubby and I do date nights, staycations, watch movies snuggled up together. The other day, hubby bought me a wood burning pen, and I smiled ear to ear. He knows me well.
Yesterday, when I was selling jewelry at an event, I found people who were complaining about last minute purchases, the amount of money they spend on V day and birthdays. My new friend Carla and I, both agreed we make sure to work on our relationships daily. She and her husband planned to get carry out and watch tv. He did surprise her with flowers at the event!
We both agreed you have to buy those little gifts, do the little things, the little and big reminders of why we love each other, why we are important to each other.
It’s important, for couples to be sure not to celebrate each other one or twice a year, but every moment possible. My husband is good at this and I need to get better at it. Couples forget it’s the little things that helped build the foundation to the bigger things! make Valentines Day, a part of every day. We forget how powerful a simple, “I Love You” can make a bad day, a good one!!
Find a way to celebrate love daily, in small ways and big ones!! If not for another, then for yourself; or balance it out in all directions. However you choose to do, just do it!! Happy Loving Folks!!
